The birthdays are now on haitus– at least for another month. Thanksgiving has come and gone. The Christmas decorations are all up, out, and about
with the tree taking most of a day to pull together.
The house is moderately clean (if you ignore the mountain of laundry lurking in piles on the laundry room floor), and, for the most part, the holiday planning is complete.
Christmas dinner this year will be club sandwiches: festive!
The poor Boy, who cannot seem to kick his winter cold, said last night,
“If I tell Santa all I want for Christmas this year is my family, I wonder if we’ll all wake up with bows on us.”
It’s a nice thought.
*Yes, I do have a Hallmark Ornament illness– all of the above are from the Hallmark Ornament collections (even the snowflake) except the “Ho, Ho, Ho” ornament, and I don’t remember where or when I picked that up. What I love most is that there isn’t an ornament on that tree that doesn’t mean something to one of us. It makes the tree that much more meaningful to me.
** I promise the red will go away after Christmas. 🙂
